Old Navy Just Launched a Beauty Line and It’s Kind of Bomb
Old Navy used to be synonymous with those Fourth of July tees your mom made you wear every year. But the Gap-owned company has come a long way since your the festive attire of our youth. Over the past few years, the brand has been undergoing a style revamp a la Abercrombie & Fitch. Basically, they don’t want to be that chain retailer you used to wear in middle school. They want to work for your grown-up life. And TBH, they’ve kind of succeeded. Their $12 swing dress almost broke the Internet this summer and now they’re diving into the beauty market.
If you’ve been to the check-out line at Old Navy recently you made have noticed a few beauty products on display. Old Navy has sold third-party brands like E.L.F and Burts Bees for awhile but now they’ve just launched their own private label. And you guys, it might just make you skip your next Sephora adventure.
The new line is called Kindred Goods and is currently available at 600 US locations as of today. The 5-piece collection includes a hair and body mist, hand cream, perfume, body lotion and foaming body scrub Each has three different scents to choose from: Sea Salt & Fig, Orange Blossom & Tea and Sweet Cream & Honey. Consider it the grown-up version of your Bath & Body Works obsession. All come in at that trusty and ultra affordable Old Navy price point we love the brand for.
The only downside: this isn’t a line you can order from your couch. As of now, it is only available in select brick-and-mortar stores. So you’re just going to have to shop it the old fashioned way for now. But if there is anything that’ll get us out of bed and ready to brace the crazy world of retail, it’s a good deal.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
